Halloween may be known for creepy crafts and ghoulish decor, but no one said you can't get your daily dose of cute even on the most frightful of holidays. Treat your party guests, kids or yourself with these creative kitten cupcakes. Filled with rich chocolate and topped with buttercream frosting, these treats are sure to be an adorable activity for your Halloween celebration.
Before your cute kitty can make its debut, follow the easy cupcake recipe here.
Capture the cuteness of the friendly feline with these ingredients:
Nose and Paws: 84 black and orange jelly beans
Ears: 24 gummy black raspberry candies
Mouth: 12 purple miniature confetti sprinkles
Eyes: 24 green M&M's
Whiskers: 48 black sprinkles
You'll also need black and orange sanding sugars, black edible ink pen and white candy coating.
Pinch the tips of the black gummy raspberry candies to form pointed ears; insert in the frosting at the top of the cupcakes. Insert a jelly bean in the frosting for the nose; arrange the black sprinkles around the nose for whiskers. Insert a confetti sprinkle for a mouth.
On the bottom edges of each side of the mouth, insert six black jelly beans into the frosting for the paws.
Using the edible ink marker, draw pupils on the green M&M's, then press the eyes into the frosting.
Melt the candy coating according to package directions. Using a wooden pick, dot the coating on the eyes and on the paws to make claws.
